    The Drowning

    Against isolation,
    holy week
    and whether this man inside,
    with the sea so close,
    can watch the only tree
    through the only window.

    How can we explain it?
    When did it get started?
    The sky was a white horse
    with another door
    open to fear and deformity.
    There are no survivors
    in these stories.

    A hotbed of mare
    and the lame, nights
    made short. We rescued two
    from an empty sea.
    Never forget me
    or my real appearance,
    my last words.

    I hear
    there's a gospel of Mary
    It is a fragment
    and she is naturally saddened.
